A member of the Government’s expert panel on reviewing the criminal justice system says people attending the Māori criminal justice hui over the weekend were united in calling for change.

Professor Tracey McIntosh says the Ināia Tonu Nei hui in Rotorua was exceptional for the way it created a space for Māori to analyse the issues without having to defend being Māori.

She says real transformation is needed, rather than trying to indigenise parts of a system imposed on Māori.

"Can we get a better system? We have to get a better system. The system at the moment does too much damage and it does damage for anyone who encounters that system, whether they encounter that system because they have been harmed, or whether they encounter that system because they have harmed. I think what we have now is a system that tries to constantly evaluate risk where we need one that really tried to evaluate people and potential," Professor McIntosh says.
